Does anyone have any knowledge of VE on mobile devices Does it work, and if so which devices can support it

ah I was going to post something about this earlier but thought it was thoroughly covered:

Anyhow from what I know, if you want to actually do development on VE for mobile, then check out this link:

http://viavirtualearth.com/vve/Gallery/VEMobile.ashx

This runs off anything that is Windows Mobile 5.0 compatable as well as old smartphones. 

If you just want to get VE onto the phone, check out gmaps, which has a list of supported phones here:

I'm not sure if this is possible, but if you can rip out the source from the gmap .jar file , then you might be able to go that way too in terms of development. 

Hope that helps

oops someone pointed out to me .jars are .zips, so yeah just open the mgmaps.jar file and take a peek in there

Can you run VE on a pocket PC or other more robust mobile device exactly the same as you run it from a PC browser





Re: Virutal Earth Mobile?

Not exactly, considering the huge specs needed to run 3d mode, that feature won't work on pocket PC's.  You'll need to play with Virtual Earth Mobile to see what limits you can push on the pocket PC as there is no official kit that exactly duplicates VE for mobile devices

This is the new one from MS:

It is very good. I run it on my i-mate JASJAM:

I should really do up a blog about it.
